this morning, i'm guessing. >>> people in india are getting the keys to the cheapest car in the world. how i remember this. what does it mean for the u.s. auto industry. clark howard breaks down how the new car might help your wallet in the future. >> the nano car, the world's cheapest automobile is now in people's driveways in india. this car you can buy in india for $2500. that's right a full four-door car seats four people you like a fifth you don't, is now available and selling like crazy. you may wonder, why am i telling you about a car that's only available in india? big news, this car just passed the european union safety and crash test, a car somewhat similar to ours and europeans are already buzzing they're going to be able to buy a car, even with the modifications for european will end up being somewhere around $3500. what about us? i want you to know, for us, this is a clear trend that we are going to see, in the next few years, cars cheaper than you ever imagined, about the price of a motorcycle. i'm clark howard. for more ways to save, go to cnn do cn cnn.come/clarkhoward. >> cl
india. we learned from democrat senator claire mccaskill that, quote, if we go too far with this, that is cap and trade, then all we are going to do is chase more jobs to china and india where they've been putting up coal-fired plants every 10 minutes. in sum, we have a slew of hearings in three unsuccessful votes on the senate floor. actually i'd say four because we rejected the kyoto treaty in the beginning. the democrats taught us that cap and trade is a great big tax and will raise electricity prices on consumers i would have to say in a regressive way, send jobs to china and india all without any impact on global temperature, so off we go into the august recess secure in the knowledge that cap and trade is riddled with flaws and that democrats are seriously divided over one of president obama's top domestic policy priorities. and we also know that according to a recent polling the american public is increasingly unwilling to pay anything, as the polling has shown, to fight global warming. but all this does not mean cap and trade is dead and gone. it's very much alive as demo

. we will start right on time. the ambassador from india is here. [laughter] [applause] but councilman jack evans is here. [applause] we have representatives from different embassies, as well. let me begin this morning by introducing our special guest, dr. christina romer. as many of you may know, she is the chair of the council of economic advisers. that position was established by the employment act of 1946 where it was decided that the president of united states needed independent, objective economic analysis and advice. from the time that the council was greeted the late 40's, it has had some of the most distinguished economists serving in that position. it has had a long history of very distinguished economists and dr. romer is within the tradition. she is what the best known economists in the country and one of the best known macro economist in the country. she served for 20 years as a member of the faculty of the university of california, berkeley. in that position, she became an expert on the depression, the causes and consequences, and how the u.s. government responded. she ca
. >> you travelled around, germany, france, india, the uk, what did you notice. what kind of recommendations did you get about how they would go about treating it? >> everybody approached it differently. several countries would have done the same high-tech procedures, operation that an american doctor recommended. much less, 1/6 of the cost, 1/8 of the cost. in britain, the doctor told me to live with it. you're living your life. not going to fix this. good care in canada, not if you're only hurt. n only if you're acutely sick. he said i'll send you to the orthopedist, it will take six to nine months. >> india -- japan, i believe, they wanted to try other things first. india, alternative medicine. herbal remedies and massage. >> that's right. we did herbal medicine for five weeks. six guys massaged my shoulder with warm oil every day. it worked. more movement and less pain out of it. and the japanese insurance system would have paid for that. they paid for acupuncturacupunc shots -- japan covers everything. that's the broadest choice of any health care system i have ever s

? demand from growing countries like china and india? sophisticated financial speculators exploiting small changes in markets to make money? ali, the government now wants to rein in on excessive speculation in these important markets. >> the commodity futures trading commission which regulates the oil industry held hearings this week about speculation in the energy markets and to see whether new restrictions would need to be created. speculative traders have been blamed by some critics, as you said, christine, for causing the record runup in oil prices last summer. but it's important to realize that speculating, the "s" word is not necessarily a bad word. in fact, it happens all the time. you probably speculated whether you know it or not. let me show you a little about this. let's get that out of here, the "s" word. you want to buy a house. you are buying a house on the hope that it's going to go up in value. you are also going to live in that house. so it's a purchase. you're getting some use of that house. but you're speculating when you buy a house. that's on a personal level. airlines

. instead they're throwing films from places like iran, india, japan. instead of a nine screen multi-plex, there's just this one plush, rather cozy space. it's a deliberately low-tech affair. people living nearby appreciate the effort that's gone into bringing the movies to their door. >> cinema in a bus. it should be a bit different anyway. >> to have a mobile cinema that comes and opens up like a pandora's box is really wonderful. >> reporter: even when the film is over, there's no normal rushing home. these enthusiasts want everyone to feel included on their >> gunned down. an armed manur >> gunned down. an armed man bursts into a gym in pennsylvania and goes on a killing spree. what we know about the shooter and his victim. >> then coming home. two american journalists jailed in north korea are free and will be reunited with their families this morning. >> and driving distraction. should the government ban drivers from texting? >> the public is sick and tired of people being distracted and causing accidents. >> it's wednesday, august 5th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "w
or india or accepted today, de facto in the nuclear weapons. but the north korean case so different from india or pakistan. this is a smaller -- a small and opaque country, a record of proliferating bad things, whether that's ballistic missiles or nuclear technology. so there's no way that the united states or the world can accept this country as a nike lar weapon state. >> vick to cha, thank you so much for joining us. kiran? oh. >> live out to rob marciano. he's hanging out somewhere on friday. where is he today? he's at the world's largest yardsale. that's right, he's hunting for bargains this morning. there he is. >> what is that? it's some kind of pottery. >> vase or -- >> who knows what he's going to find. >> hello! >> he's going to join us to tell us how they pulled this thing off. >> that looks fantastic. . unlock an outdoor dreamland for your indoor cat. exciting flavor combinations, plus a touch of garden greens make it irresistible. indoor delights. feed the senses. it's the chevy open house. and now, with the cash for clunkers program, a great deal gets even better. let us re
the same health care and food as boys. in india, for example, girls are less likely to be vaccinated that be boys and are take on the the hospital only when they are sicker. the girls in india from 1 to 5 years of age are 50% more likely to die than boys their age. in addition, ultra sound machines have allowed a pregnant woman to find out the sex of her own fetus and then get an abortion if it's female. the global statistics on the abuse of girls are numbing. it appears that more girls and women are now missing from the planet precisely because they are female than men were killed on the batting field in all of the wars of the 20th century. so with a new administration in power and with a female woman heading the state department, how should u.s. priorities on women's issues internationally change? guest: the secretary of state hillary clinton is doing a marvelous job of highlighting the issue of women's equality around the world. one thing that we need to do in this country is the united states senate needs to ratify the united nations women's convention, the convention on the elim
the energy race with china and india? the answer is yes. we well, we have that in america, oil reserves throughout the west that rival saudi arabia's deposits, also ail in alaska, and other states. do the authors of cap and trade want to tap into that? no, we have coal reserves that have been referred to as the saudi arabia of coal. these are in kentucky, ohio, west virginia, montana and wyoming. do the authors of cap and trade want to tap into that? no america has that and more. we have the uranium, wind, solar, bio mass and hydropower. we have it all and can develop it in a responsible way. the authors of cap and trade don't want to develop all american energy resources. they want to start the energy race with china and india two laps behind as opposed to three laps ahead. the more energy america can produce, the stronger the american economy will be. energy development creates jobs, not just green jobs, but real red, white, and blue jobs. we need to keep all the american jobs we can. we need them all, and the solution rests on our shores. thank you, madam chairman. >> thank you, sena
. it has also been passed in the country of india and it failed there, too. what people don't realize is that a lot of the times the plastic surgeon is doing a combined reconstructive and cosmetic procedure and it is difficult to separate one from the other. the most important part of it is the humanity involved in it. a lot of times it is reconstructing people and their scars, for instance, breast cancer, skin cancer and even cleft lip and pallet and i doubt many americans will want to have that taxed. i bet there are a lot of women who have had breast cancer who will be against this. >>> do we know if there will be a distinction between something like an eyebrow lift that is cosmetic? >> the details haven't been worked out. i think it is still in the committee. i know that senator balk said we will have some fun with this one and i think there was an uproar in there because i doubt many people who have had cancer think there is much fun or humor to it. >> seems like so much of what washington is focused on is making sure they go after the high tax bracket folks, people who seem to h

to prevent that? i sat down with a group from india, from noorway, from iraq, and from the united states to try and figure that out. take a listen. >> what piece of advice would you give to people at home interested in this? >> i think most importantly, cancer enters your body, but you cannot let it control your life. and for us that means knowledge is power. you have to educate yourself, unity is strength, you have to have people around you to support you through this, and attitude is everything. >> you should also exercise and be physically active, you should not engage in any activity that predisposes to sexually transmitted disease. these are the key risk factors. >> and you can draw a line from reducing these activities and reducing cancer. >> oh, absolutely. as you said, one-third of all cancers is preventable. and this is the way to prevent cancers. >> is cancer a glimpse into the world of health care reform? something that we've been talking so much about in the united states? >> yeah, i think cancer is the best example or microcosm of this big debate, and the in the united state
